A chicken dish

The final product. Yummy.
I keep making up my own recipes. Who knew cooking could be so fun? The above is a yummy dish of chicken and mushrooms. Mainly chicken and mushrooms. :)

Bread box.

And here's my new bread box, that I got second hand for a mere $2. What does it say about me that I was so excited to get a bread box? Which I'm not actually using to store bread in?

Ingredients

Some chopped onion
Finely chopped garlic
Mushrooms
Basil
Cayenne pepper (my usual secret ingredient)
Olive oil
Chicken

Instructions

Put oil in a pan, and saute the mushrooms and onions with the garlic, some basil, and a pinch (or two) of cayenne pepper.

I'd recommend using a larger pan is shown in the photos. I wasn't being very smart.


 Chop up the dead fowl.


Once the onions and mushrooms have been sauteing for a while, add in the chopped dead bird and continue cooking. I think I may have added in another pinch of cayenne pepper. But I may also be a nut.


The results were delicious. :)

It's interesting, on one hand I can't handle the really spicy foods, and yet I like to use enough cayenne pepper that my lips tingle when I eat.

Mmmm dead fowl, my favourite! And that's a beautiful bread box for only $2.

I'll skip the dead animal meal. Sounds like it would be a great recipe, but since I don't eat animals, and my hubby doesn't like onions or mushrooms so wouldn't want it... Anyway, glad you enjoyed it.

You're allowed to be excited about a bread box. I was excited about little things like that when I first started living on my own. And anyway, getting new stuff is always exciting!

What will you put in your bread box? I used to use mine to store packets of dried fruit (raisins mostly). Yeah, I know, I'm nosy!

Debra -- I've been eating it a lot lately.

Tori -- Sorry, the contents of the beadbox are visible in the photo, but I didn't think to tell! And don't worry, I can be nosy too. :) I've got the spices I use the most, garlic and an onion, and some sausage snacks (or whatever they're called) that I haven't opened yet. I've since added the honey. On top of the bread box is a bowl of candy, a tea bag dispenser, and a sprouting potato that I'm having fun watching.

My brother is also vegetarian, and I used to be too. But I didn't really cook too much back then. I should come up with some vegetarian stuff, for when/if my brother eats at my place, and also so that I have something to interest vegetarian readers like yourself. Maybe I'll also try something vegan... :)

Cool; thanks for the description. :)

Well, if you do try any vegetarian dishes, I'd be interested in the recipes; vegan ones too. I do have some on my recipe blog (I have some recipes for non-vegetarians on theretoo; partially from when I did eat meat, and partially because of the fact my hubby eats meat and fish). But you can never have too many recipes! :)

If I do come up with a yummy vegan recipe I'll most likely share it here.
